June 29, 2009

“If you enjoy the efforts of Gil Evans, Bob Brookmeyer, Carla Bley, Maria Schneider, Guillermo Klein, NOJO or Jason Lindner’s big band in modern times,” writes Michael G. Nastos in his newly posted review of Infernal Machines at, “you’ll surely enjoy this finely crafted effort from Argue, supported by a combination of New York veterans and newcomers.”

He adds, “The combined layering of sounds, vibrant color palate, and marvelous inventive writing makes for some startling and satisfying original music played by some very impressive musicians.”
